Windermere I remodel

Hawthorne Hills Courtyard & Kitchen

A 5 x 20 feet addition below an existing porch roof was all it took to create a front entry and walk-in closet, a sunny breakfast nook and an expanded new kitchen. By capturing a 1-foot space left between the ceiling and a previously added second floor we gave the main floor a new feeling of light and spaciousness. A dull front sloping lawn was transformed into a sunny eastern courtyard, which provides a great outdoor space with shaded relief from the afternoon sun and gives the house a pleasing street appeal.
